  • Conclusion: The Maclaren Techno XLR travel system is and outstandingly popular travel system and it’s easy to see why. It looks good and quietly gets on with the job. The only criticism is that a bigger baby might not be able to use the carrycot for long, but the seatback does recline flat so makes up for this to a degree.
  • Pros: Good reliable buggy, great car seat, useful carrycot, well made and designed travel system, looks good, In spite of not having the flashy, fashionable appearance of some travel systems, the Techno XLR really does do what it says on the tin. Cormac loved comfortable ride, well positioned safety straps and variety of seat back angles. Being a nosey boy living in Scotland, he particularly liked the rain hood that fitted so well he could still see out. The carrycot let hi...
  • Cons: Reclining mechanism is a bit fiddly, carrycot isn’t very big, Cormac looked very cosy in the carrycot during a recent trip to Granny’s but – at 12 weeks – he only just fitted in at full stretch. The spec says it’s good for babies up to 9kg, but I don’t think a tot as heavy as that would begin to fit.

After looking at options for our newborn, I settled on the XLR for primarily for MACLAREN’S reputation on producing strong long lasting strollers.

Key FeaturesStroller TypeUmbrellaNumber of SeatsSingle SeatHarness Points5-PointRecline Fea... We have had this stroller for over 3 years now, and I can’t write enough good things about it. It has been through heavy use with 2 kids, and it is the only baby thing in our house I will be sad to let go of when the time comes.

Strollers and Prams

  • Summary: The thing I love most about Maclaren strollers is the manoeuverability, and lightweightness. Although it is a two handle stroller, it can really be steered with one hand even with an 18 kg (39.6lbs) 5 year old sleeping in it! Yes, this stroller is perfect for my 102 cm (40.2 inches) tall son who doesnÂ’t like to walk much and still takes his afternoon nap!
  • Pros: Huge seat allowing bigger toddler capacity and more comfortable ride, Uber plush reversible seat liner!, New and improved one-hand seat recline mechanism, Extremely large hood coverage, Extra storage behind the hood, Big wheels making the stroller higher than others and suitable for all terrain handling, Fabulous manoeuverability and lightweight
  • Cons: Longer in size making it unable to fit the normal single stroller travel bags, Storage basket hard to access when seat is reclined, No cupholder
